Through the Shattered Lens

The artist Isaac Paul Rader was born and lived in Brooklyn.  He studied art in Europe and had his first museum exhibition at the age of 16.  Rader is best known for being a prolific illustrator of pulp paperback covers.  His work is distinguished by both an attention to detail and an emphasis on strong, seductive women.  Rader was so prolific and respected that he was one of the few cover artists allowed to retain his signature on his work.
